: vegan meal of the week : week 12 :

so, i am waiting for blake to get home, so we can hurry up and eat this!
im hoping it tastes as amazing as it smells!

this recipe came from alicia silverstones book, the kind diet [love this book, btw]
sugar snap peas, radishes, and edamame with lemon butter
[serves 6]

cook 2 cups sugar snap peas [trimmed], 1 cup shelled edamame, and 1 bunch radishes [trimmed and thinly sliced] in boiling salted [1/4 teaspoon sea salt] water for 1 minute. drain and rinse under cold water immediately to stop the cooking process.
heat 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. add 2 tablespoon minced shallots, and saute for 2-3 minutes or until soft. add the drained snap peas, edamame, radishes, and salt and cook for 1 minute or until heated through.

remove from heat, and stir in 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon zest, 1 teaspoon vegan butter, 3/4 teaspoon umeboshi vinegar, juice of 1/4 lemon and 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper.
serve warm.

what i did differently : used a mixture of peas, carrots, green beans, edamame. used black radishes. peanut oil instead of evoo, onions in place of shallots. no lemon zest [only because i must have missed that step!], and used apple cider vinegar in place of umeboshi.

*sidenote : this is waaaaay better with a dash of soy sauce*
